Norðfjörður nature and wildlife
Norðfjörður – Nature and wildlife tour
sailing – family friendly – refreshments included
This guided tour of Norðfjörður Bay will bring you into completely deserted fjords without another human in sight.
First, we get a beautiful view of Neskaupstaður as we sail under the mountain Nípa and its 600m-high sea cliffs searching for puffins and identifying seabirds. We’ll catch a glimpse of the famous Easter Cave and as we cross the bay to Barðsnes, we’ll pass by the beautiful Red Cliffs. Finally, we’ll dip into Viðfjörður to hear a ghost story and sail near the abandoned settlement in Hellisfjörður. Your guide will also teach you how to spot whales long along the way. If we’re lucky, you might even get to spend some time with a humpback whale! The tour finishes off with homemade pastries and hot chocolate.
